Wayfarer Estate Fort Ross Seaview Chardonnay 2020

Product description

This Chardonnay has copious energy. Notes of lemon tart, honeysuckle, tangerine and pear emerge from the glass. Over time, elements of orange blossom, white peach, chamomile and a touch of flintiness evolve. The wine enters the palate with a rush of freshness reminiscent of the Northern California coast. An abundance of lively acidity complements the rich, deep texture, and the finish is marked by persistent, refreshing minerality.

97 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2020 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard is fragrant and layered with lemon verbena, toasted brioche, and white peach. It has detail and definition in its structure, with refreshing acidity and a stony, lifted finish.

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2020 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard has pretty scents of baked apples, beeswax, roasted almonds and toast. The medium-bodied palate has a satiny texture and layered, savory flavors balanced by refreshing acidity, and it finishes long and flavorful.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

Impressive, with ripe mango, dried pineapple and tangerine flavors that are intense, focused and juicy. Details of lemongrass, cardamom and ginger linger on the long, expressive finish, with a supple frame adding an air of elegance.
